It’s Showtime! – Residency
In this two-day residency, eight classes work closely with singer-songwriter Jack Grunsky to prepare and present a concert. Each class works on a song and activity prior to Jack’s arrival and rehearses with him throughout the first day. On the second day, Jack brings the groups together for a school performance that is repeated for friends and families in the evening.
Sing. Listen. Learn – Performance
Jack strongly believes in the magic of music and singing to empower children. In his participatory performance he will share songs to inspire and spark creative young minds and nurture listening skills; songs that open windows to the world and songs for building language skills, body and spacial awareness, promote self-esteem and a sense of community.
